ABV: 4.5 IBU: 50
Upland Brewing Co. Campside IPA
What the brewers say
“More than 75 percent of the hops were added after the boil, preserving the distinct fragrance of grapefruit, apricot, and pine as much as possible. With a crisp, but subtle bitterness and a refreshingly light malt character, this is the perfect warm weather beverage for those who think flavor is just as important as refreshment.”
What our panel thought
Aroma: “Light citrus (orange, lemon, lime) with some tropical fruit (pineapple and guava), slight grassy notes, a bit of earthy dankness, and some bready malt character beneath.”
Flavor: “Light bodied without being thin. Light sweet malt character up front, followed by a grassy hops notes with a hint of lemon, but not a lot of complex hops flavor. A bit off balanced—bitter but not much malt body to go with it. Bitter on the finish, but well balanced.”
Overall: “A good, easy-drinking IPA. Nothing is overwhelming, which—given the simple body—lets the subtle characters come out on the finish. It’s smooth and covers all the bases.”

New Belgium The Hemperor HPA®
Our brewers are always on the lookout for different hops varieties and the complexities and flavors new strains can bring. That’s where hemp comes into the picture. Without getting too nerdy, we found a unique way to recreate hemp terpene flavors in a beer, which complement the inclu- sion of hop flavors and hemp hearts (seeds) in a brand new, delicious way not to mention this beer is extremely dank! The flavors and aromas are so unique that it’s a style unto itself, hence HPA®.
Tröegs Independent Brewing Hop Knife
Cracking open a Hop Knife takes me right to the hops fields in Yakima,’ says our brewmaster, John Trogner. ‘When we’re out there for harvest, walking the fields and talking to the farmers, those notes of citrus, pine, and tropical fruit are everywhere. For me, Hop Knife embodies that whole experience.’
High Hops Brewery Dr. Pat’s Double IPA
Who is Dr. Pat? A dentist, third-generation farmer, and cofounder of High Hops Brewery. Dr. Pat cultivated our on-site hops farm in 2007, which led to the opening of High Hops Brewery in 2012. It’s his recipe that creates this malty, heavily hopped beer. We brew it with continuous hops additions using hops grown in that same field more than 10 years later.
